This book, Alfred Korzybski: Collected Writings, 1920-1950, from 1990 is only available second-hand – too expensive. I then found the Google edition below.

Later:

This book and all of Korzybski’s books are for sale cheaply at General Semantics Institute online

RET, Albert Ellis and general semantics

IGS Discussion Forums: Albert Ellis in the News:

Dr. Albert Ellis gave the Alfred Korzybski Memorial Lecture in 1991 in New York City. It was all about the parallels between his Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and General Semantics. He stated, “I was distinctly influenced, when formulating and developing RET, by several of Korzybski’s ideas.” (General Semantics Bulletin #58, p. 25)

A generally semantic journey

I have enjoyed some of the writing and audio from Al Turtle a relationship therapist. I get an RSS feed of his updates and today found a link to his favourite books. Great idea!

I found an ebook of A. E. Van Vogt’s The World of Null-A, non-Aristotelian logic in SF form. I see that this is not a one-off in Al’s list! He is into General Semantics – intrigued I went off on a search trail.
